*Press SamplesHi there everyone and welcome to Wednesday. I hope the week is treating you well. I'm definitely not used to being back at work so I'm kind of in zombie mode right now. I'm also admittedly not a good morning person at all. I'm a pretty good mid-morning/afternoon person though ;)
Today I have two brand new Zoya collections for Summer 2014. The Tickled collection consists of 6 creams and the Bubbly collection consists of six polishes which Zoya is calling holographic jellies. I went back and forth on how I wanted to show these collections and ultimately I decided to combine them. My reasoning was because I would wear the Bubbly collection over polishes and not on their own because they are on the sheer side so I wanted to show how I would wear them. Let's get started.
Wendy-A juicy melon coral cream. I think this polish looks different dependent on your skin tone because I've seen it look pinker on other people but one me it definitely leans more coral. I love the color of this one. The first coat was a little gloopy for me but the second coat evened everything out. All swatches of the creams are with topcoat.
Alma-A light golden orange peach metallic with the glitter jelly formula. I wouldn't classify the jellies as holographic but they are definitely very sparkly. I layered one coat over Wendy, with no topcoat. I will say that there was really good coverage with one coat.
Kitridge-A classic summer bubblegum pink cream. Love it! I'm obsessed with this Barbie pink kind of color and this one is so pretty. It did dry semi-matte which is why I ended up topcoating all of the creams :) The formula was great on this one and I needed two coats.
Harper-A cotton candy pink with spun gold shimmer jelly. This one is darker than Kitridge, which is what I swatched it over. I used one coat over Kitridge. All of the jellies had the exact same formula and covered well in one coat.
Rooney-A mid-tone magenta pink cream, slightly dusty. This color is very pretty, almost a pale berry color, and the formula was great. I used two coats with topcoat.
Binx-A spicy purple orchid with gold metallic sparkles. This one is hands down my favorite of the jellies and I used one coat over Rooney.
Tilda-A warm mantis green cream. This one is super unique and one of my favorites. I haven't seen a color like this before and I ended up wearing this one to work :) Great formula on this one, I used two coats with topcoat.
Staasi-A medium citron green with gold shimmer. This is one coat over Tilda.
Rocha-A warm red-orange cream. This polish is so bright and vibrant and very punchy for Summer. This one had a great formula as well and needed two coats. I also wanted to note that this one was easy to clean up. Reds and oranges are notorious for bleeding all over the place with cleanup but I didn't have any problems with this one.
Jesy-A fiery coral orange with gold shimmer. In the bottle I thought this was more of an orange melon color but it leans more orange on the nail. I used one coat over Rocha.
Ling-A medium marine royal blue. Be still my blue polish loving heart! I love this one! The formula was great and I needed two coats.
Muse-A blue raspberry with subtle gold shimmer. I loved this one as well! One coat over Ling.
Overall I'm really happy with both collections. I will definitely get more use out of the creams but I like the glitter-ness of the new jellies. My favorites from the Tickled collection are Wendy, Kitridge, Tilda, and Ling and my favorites from the Bubbly collection are Binx and Muse. I plan on doing comparisons so if you think of something, leave me a comment and I'll add it to my list! Which are your favorites? You can find these polishes here.
